My experience was like no other. The beauty warmth and energy created by Michelle, and my fellow retreaters allowed for me to be accepted as myself, in my level of fitness and interaction with others. The environment created was safe, peaceful and energetic. A beautifully crafted retreat to reset and rethink self care, and what is most important for your well being. I’ll be back!

I recently had the pleasure of joining the week-long women’s retreat at Gaia Oasis in Bali, and it was an incredible experience. Michelle Redman – Vitalitymoves, designed a rich program focused on the concept of “spaciousness,” which included a potpourri of techniques and methods woven through a thread of meditation and yoga. Her attention to detail and care towards each participant throughout the high-energy program was impressive. The day would start at 6.30 am with the last session after dinner, around 8pm, but I felt revived and rejuvenated after the retreat. It was enriching for the mind, body and soul, even though her focus is primarily physical. What I appreciated a great deal was that, integral to the programme, is giving back to the local community of Bali. Gaia Oasis is a volunteer organisation that works with the local community to improve local lives and the living environment in North Bali. The integrity and respect for locally-led work, without imposing western frameworks, was admirable.

I have been lucky enough to dance with Michelle for several years now and was also introduced to yoga and the practice of Qigong. Working with Michelle has helped shape my approach to my physical and mental wellbeing in a profound way. She has a deep understanding of the methods she teaches and her ongoing commitment to improving her own practice. I love Michelle’s down to earth approach, and she always has a way of adapting her programs to suit the diverse needs of her groups. I trust her with my body, she is careful and mindful in her approach to individual capabilities and limitations. Thank you Michelle, for the inspiration to stay strong and mobile, and to bring a sense of joy and vitality to movement. It makes my life better.

Alice Springs 2018
Alice Springs Yoga Retreat

Sunrise yoga after a brisk walk along the Todd river to a local hill


I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to be part of the retreat to Alice Springs 2018. Thanks Michelle for your generosity, insightfulness and for guiding us so beautifully.The planning seemed faultless as well as intuitive from start to finish.

It was a gentle introduction to place when we arrived, seeing the sun setting over Alice – Mpartwe from the hilltop opposite our hotel, then up early the next day to the first of our seven days sunrise yoga. I loved the  standing poses. I loved the walk in silence. The process opened my body to the crisp moment of sunrise and quickly developed my balance, strength and stamina.

After hearty breakfasts we found ourselves diving into connection with land and place and people via Mali and Lorna, our generous Aboriginal aunties. They sat with us in their place, showed us how to listen to trees drinking, the wind choosing where to send the smoke, the land speaking of its origins through the stories of the people and the plants giving up their leaves to help us all in our lives.

The visits to the Gorges and local places were supported by the Lorna and Mali connection too with accompanying stories and understandings that we couldn’t have gained without their input and your connection to them.

Then the story of those connections between you and the people in Alice were also part of a big learning and profoundly changed my sense of the indigenous people in Alice and the surrounding communities. It was fabulous to go and to see what has been created at the Purple House. It was fantastic to have the attention of Sarah to explain how this amazing enterprise came into being.

I loved that our travels took us to amazing landscapes where we walked and explored and then ate beautiful food, did Qigong and relaxation, laughed a lot. I was completely blown away by the colour of the earth and sky and no less by the wonderful group of women. So glad we sniffed the air together, hugged the big trees together, watched from our sleeping bags as the the huge shooting star sliced downwards from the milky way!

Thank-you for your capacity to lead us into such complete immersion for body mind and soul and for making this an unforgettable experience.
